Abstract:We continue to work with IDNR staff to assure that our GIS data are compatible with upgrades to their system. Summaries of landuse/landcover, surficial geology, and other GIS derived attributes for upgraded linework are only now becoming available for project use. Due to these ongoing efforts to consolidate GIS data with IDNR staff we reduced our time commitment on this project during the reporting period and requested a one year no-cost extension. The equivalent of 0.6 FTE research scientist was employed during this reporting period to support this work. We also employed one summer hourly worker to assist with data entry, analysis, and ongoing temperature monitoring. Work during this reporting period focused on maintaining field based water temperature loggers at over 30 locations in Illinois streams and three water level loggers on Wade Creek. We also conducted a fish sampling effort to determine the presence of target species in a currently monitored reach where no recent fish surveys have been conducted. All available temperature data has been summarized.
